T-shirts can be a great way of displaying your personality. So if you like comic books, how about wearing comics T-shirts? And if you make your own comics, how about getting them on a T-shirt? Comic Strip Tees has a solution for you.
Each day the website will show a different comic, and you have one week to purchase a shirt with that comic on it. (Does this count as a limited edition comic book?) The artists receive $2 of every purchase, and they don’t have to worry about losing any of their rights.
Comic Strip Tees has three things in mind: helping artists showcase and earn money, giving people new comics to read daily, and to let readers discover new writers and artists they like. To begin with, they’re showing (on cloth!) the work of Mike Allred, Roger Langridge, Simon Fraser, and Pat Barrett.
After being in the works for a year, the site itself just got started this week. That means it’s time to get the word out. Besides, isn’t it fun to wear T-shirts other people can read? And if you’re an artist, you know people look at how other people dress, so that’s one unique way of advertising!
